Membership has its Privileges!"Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much." ~Helen Keller
Members of SHPA have one common goal: To ensure that every man, woman and child has access to quality housing and supportive services as needed in the least restrictive environment. We also share a common belief--that our goal to end homelessness is much more attainable if we work TOGETHER.
TOGETHER we have housed over 10,100 individuals across Illinois. TOGETHER we plan to create thousands more units of permanent supportive housing, enabling more people to have a place that they can call home.
Despite the bleak economic climate, SHPA has accomplished some remarkable feats in the past year. Look at just a few of the amazing things we did by working TOGETHER:
We WILL continue to work to ensure the survival of our member organizations. We WILL continue the fight for a responsible budget in Illinois. Through our Coming Home Campaign, we WILL continue the work of expanding supportive housing to meet the great need for those exiting nursing homes. We WILL continue to connect SHPA members to state and national advocacy efforts—it is our united strength that has continued to get us the funding that we need. Finally, through our quarterly statewide and other regional meetings, we WILL continue to network, share, and inspire one other.
We hope that you can see the value in being a part of the SHPA family. By becoming a member of SHPA, you not only make an incredible investment in your own organization, you make and investment in a strong future for all of us. Every dollar saved from state cuts, every new unit of housing developed, every family no longer living on the street is a return on your investment. All of this is possible when we commit to working TOGETHER.
